Finding journal and magazine articles can be the most confusing difference between GIL and GALILEO.
- If you want to find out what articles were published on your topic, use GALILEO@UGA. [See how to choose a GALILEO database.]
- If you already have your citation, i.e., you know the article title, journal title, volume or date, and page numbers, use either GIL or the E-Journals tab on the Libraries homepage. [See how to find an article from a citation.]
